New Bishop of Kamensk Consecrated in Irkutsk

During his recent pastoral visit to the Irkutsk Region in central Siberia Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of Moscow celebrated the consecration of Archimandrite Seraphim (Kuz'minov) as Bishop of Kamensk and Alpayevsk in the catholicon of Irkutsk's Monastery of Our Lady of the Sign. The services were concelebrated in the presence of the relics of St. Innocent of Irkutsk by the patriarch and twelve other hierarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The eparchy of the newly consecrated bishop is one of the newer dioceses established by the Church for the faithful living in the region of the Ural Mountains. More (in Russian) here.
